C:\>apt-get install python-imaging
Bad command or file name

bash: apt-get: command not found

Not quite; but, it does give me an idea.  Debian usually keeps the
origional source packages in their package repositories:

02:09,502,(1)$ wget
           => `python-imaging_1.1.5.orig.tar.gz'

02:09:43 (246.26 KB/s) - `python-imaging_1.1.5.orig.tar.gz' saved [429570/429570]


Now that's the ticket!
